If there is no court order in place restricting your residence you can move. However, your spouse could file a motion requesting you move back because it is not in the best interest of the child to be moved. But, you get to also counter his argument that it is in the best interest of the child....Read more »
I found out that all of the documents were filed in the wrong county by the process server company. I was then told that all of the documentation needs to be reserved to the defendant to then be filed in the correct county. Can I just get the original documents e-filed in correct county?
Yes but you will need to nonsuit the case you filed in wrong county before the respondent (defendant) files something against you in that case, for example, asking for attorney’s fees for having to deal with a case in a county with no jurisdiction.
I have a temp. child support order because my divorce isn't finalized. Custodial parent makes almost double income than me, yet I'm paying 25% for 2 children. I live in Idaho and in Idaho a non-custodial has the right to claim the children if he/she is current on child support.
The IRS rule is that whoever has the children more than 50% of the time, can claim the children on tax returns. That’s a federal law. And although I don’t practice law in Idaho, respectfully, I highly doubt they would have a law that contradicts IRS rules. Claiming children on tax returns is a...Read more »

My original child support order was created in 2009 and supposedly expired in 2011 from what I am being told. However, I continued to pay from 2009 to current through our registry only account until recently when my daughter’s mom requested a modification. I have since agreed to the new amount... Read more »
Thanks for your question! It sounds like it'd be helpful to reach out to a local, family law attorney in the area (New Braunfels) so they can learn more about the facts in this current matter and also review the original child support order from 2009.
Had a conference to adjust child support payments and custodial parent agreed to end payments. Judge said it's a private attorney matter. Does this just involve putting this in writing with an attorney or what are the steps?

The non custodial parent lives in New York and just visited the kids this year after being away since January 2020. The other parent refuses to co-parent with me and chooses to speak with my toxic family members. Just recently on March 10, he lied to a family member and it resulted in a false CPS... Read more »

My husband and his ex wife’s divorce/child support order was through Missouri. Neither party lives in that state any longer. She just modified the amount through Missouri while living in Alabama does that need to change to her current state or does it matter?
Thanks for your question! I am not familiar with Missouri laws, but generally, a court retains jurisdiction until it is either lost or transferred. Thus, it is possible for your husband's ex-wife to modify the amount of child support even though she lives in Alabama. Hope that helps!...Read more »

He has 2 other children he currently pays child support for and has sent me text messages saying if I do take him to child support he will make sure I look like a bad person to the point that I lose my job. I feel like he just doesn't want the financial responsibility.
I would suggest that you hire a family law attorney so the attorney can represent your interests and better understand your situation. The mere fact that you are pregnant with twins would not generally be a reason for a judge to award 50-50 custody.
